He's 98 years old, and knows a little magic from having previously worked with a magician. He's best friends with Garbo, and met Uncle Wally at a juggling school in the Orient. The script for his debut appearance describes his voice as "a combination of Mel Brooks' 2,000 Year Old Man and Marlon Brando."
Years later, the puppet was used as an unnamed rabbit (performed by Martin P. Robinson) in Episode 4159, anxious to have his electric teapot fixed at the Fix-It Shop before his tea party. The puppet later made various background appearances on Plaza Sésamo during season 11.
